When I first talked to Entrepreneurship Professor Julio de Castro back in July about shooting this video, he was very enthusiastic until the moment I mentioned the yips. Nobody talks about that, he said, it’s just bad luck. Well, after a bit of to-ing and fro-ing, he finally agreed to do it.
Yips or the yips is the loss of fine motor skills without apparent explanation in one of a number of different sports. Athletes affected by the yips demonstrate a sudden, unexplained loss of previous skills.
In golf, the yips is a movement disorder that most-commonly interferes with putting. The term yips is said to have been popularized by Tommy Armour—a golf champion and later a golf teacher—to explain the difficulties that led him to abandon tournament play. The technical term is focal dystonia.
Check out what Prof. de Castro has to say about yips, golf, and entrepreneurs.

Experts from a range of companies explored how big data will change a trip to the mall, online shopping or a vacation to Las Vegas. The discussion covered the kinds of information that companies can and will use to better serve and understand their customers. This exploration also sought insights into what is already changing and what will change as big data allows enterprises to dig deeper into consumer preferences. Companies, of course, want to better target would-be patrons without eroding consumers’ sense of privacy.
This session was developed in partnership with Time magazine and broadcast on CNN Money.

Published on 12 Jul 2012What does the world's largest repository (Thomson Web of Science) of more than 26 million scientific papers tell us about trends in the production of scientific knowledge? There appears to be a nearly universal end to the era of the solo scientist and a rise in the supremacy of teams. The advantage of teams is growing and frontier of knowledge is reached through the invisible but complex networks through which scientists assemble teams.
Back in October when I first spoke about shooting this video of the Dean of IE University’s School of Architecture, Javier Quintana, he said he would like to compare the architecture of Venice with the architecture of New York, more specifically the Campanile in Piazza San Marco and the Metropolitan Tower. Coincidentally enough I had to travel to New York at the end of that month and had the opportunity to film some of the places he wanted to talk about. Then, in November, I joined him on a business trip to Venice. I had a great time, partly because there aren’t many cities that can beat Venice on a sunny day, or any other day for that matter, and partly because he spoke with such passion and knowledge about the two cities that I gained a new perspective of every corner, every square, and every tower.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t fit all the interesting things he said into this video, and he didn’t only talk about architecture, but also about music, cinema, and life in general. So there I had no room left to say anything about either the amazing Schubert or the fabulous Death in Venice (both the film and the book). I decided to focus more on the life side of things. You’ll be interested to know that Dean Quintana is really good company when it comes to looking round shops.

Santiago Iñiguez, President of IE University, interviews Arnoud De Meyer, President of Singapore Management University, about the success of Asian Universities in the Global Higher Education Market and the key factors that have helped Singapore to become an international education hub.
The interview took place at the IE Madrid Campus during the Reinventing Higher Education Conference organized by IE University, where experts gathered from international institutions like Oxford University, Brown University, the World Economic Forum, Wikipedia, Alexandria Trust and the British Council to discuss the environment surrounding universities nowadays. This includes things like the demand in a globalized world, the strength of emerging markets like Asia or the Middle East, and innovation in teaching methods.
"Life in the academic lanes", October 26, 2012, By Della Bradshaw of The Financial Times
As James Ellis – or Jim as he prefers to be known – leans back in his chair in the Financial Times offices in London and explains the benefits of online learning, it is clear he is not the usual bookish business school dean. “It (online learning) will allow a student in Fargo, Dakota to talk to one in Aberdeen, Scotland,” explains the top dog at the Marshall school at the University of Southern California. What is more, he adds, he has played golf in both locations – in Aberdeen, he emphasises, in the rain.
It is easy to conjure up a picture of the 65-year old former retail executive on the golf course, but this shrewd businessman has also proved his worth as a business-school dean, a job he has held for the past six years and for which he clearly still has tremendous enthusiasm. “I can’t tell you how much fun it is,” he says.
